A new and simple method is proposed for the miniaturisation design of patch antenna utilising a low-profile mushroom type meta-substrate. The functional mushroom element is analytically studied. A simple designing rule is obtained to tailor the effective high permittivity for the element as one desires. In validation, one proof of the conceptual patch antenna is presented experimentally loaded with the mushroom meta-substrate. The antenna size is 0.18λ 0 × 0.18λ 0 × 0.029λ 0. Numerical and measured antenna characteristics are in good agreement. The impedance is well matched in bandwidth of 2.1%. The measured cross-polar levels are all below −23 dB. The measured antenna gain is 5.7 dBi and the radiation efficiency is 85%. The authors remark that the meta-substrate is intrinsically compatible with printed planar fabrication technology and can be easily made using common dielectrics and metals of low cost. The designing method in this work is simple and yet promising. With the intuitive analytical rule, any other desirable high index permittivity can be further obtained for future potential compact patch antenna designs.
